Florencia Walfisch | Time As Space

Time is a place. Fabric is a space I inhabit, a field of forces. I question the shape; something more than a fold, something less: love, pain. A drawing of bones sounds until I can hear. Each thread brings its own pulse. Lines open directions, color advances: magenta, blue, unknown. Tensing or releasing according to the compression of what’s to come. Going back is building a map. A silence in the plane can hold the landscape. Someone keeps the gestures which are yet to come. I am the first incision, the last one. Now it is a terrain. Time means we are moving in a still space.
